Hi there! I'm Deborah Schleicher, a licensed clinical psychologist in Los Angeles. Thanks for taking this moment for yourself, or someone you care about, to learn how therapy can become a useful tool in life if it isn't already. Therapy is a way to invest in personal growth and change. I have over 10 years clinical experience working with youth, families and adults that reached out the moment they were considering taking this step. This may be where you are at now. If so, it's only fair to read a little more about me including what I do and how I work. During these uncertain times there’s never been a better time to invest in you.

I believe there is a natural tendency toward growth, a desire to be more of ourselves and to enjoy the things we do. For many, that curiosity and vitality has been restricted or shut down. This may lead to feeling depressed, like nothing will change for you. Or anxious, it will only get worse. Or perhaps you sense things could be different and are frustrated, not knowing how to access that new way of being. Psychotherapy is a process through which you can understand how these feelings have come about and how to access your natural tendency toward wellness.

Life's stressors can feel overwhelming, and sometimes downright debilitating. Many of us struggle with managing obligations in our personal and professional lives. This can leave one feeling anxious, depressed, fearful, hopeless and distraught. Therapy can provide a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to unpack and unload some of the emotional baggage that has been weighing you down. I offer a warm, supportive, non-judgmental approach, and believe a strong therapeutic relationship is key.

I know that finding the right therapist can be an overwhelming process. In my practice, I attempt to create a safe, nurturing space where we can actively engage in the process of self discovery together. I am passionate about this work and believe that it does lead to lasting change. I have experience with creative professionals and understand the ups and downs of being an industry professional. During these uncertain times, I have found that tele health offers an unexpected bonus. It seems to provide opportunities to take risks that may not feel as safe when we are face to face.

As human beings we all question our physical and emotional well being from time to time. It is healthy and normal to be concerned about one's emotional state, especially with the events that have taken place in the last year. As individuals progress though life challenges, therapy can be a vital component to navigating relationships, life stresses, and increasing self-understanding. The most painful problems are the ones you can't talk about or find yourself talking about them too often and perhaps you need help with containment. You're not alone. You can resolve your conflicts and questions and learn new ways to solve problems.

Clients often seek therapy in order to effect some form of change in their lives. My work is less about change and more about understanding and acceptance. Our work is a collaborative format in which I assist you in understanding your unconscious motivations and accepting yourself just as your are. In other words, meeting you where you are and encouraging you to do the same. Change is secondary to self-acceptance. It is only when we love and accept ourselves that we can extend this grace to others. Currently we are living in a time of unprecedented uncertainness. Acceptance leads to less stress and a healthier immune system.
